In addition to the automation of processes in the home, home automation systems also help with the protection of lives and property. With the touch of a button on a mobile device or even a voice command, you can turn lights on and off, close the curtains, turn the cooker on, reduce/increase the temperature of a room, among many other helpful things, even when you are not at home.
Let’s take a look at some devices that are used for home security systems and home automation;
i. Smart cameras
Smart cameras are one of the most common home automation devices that allow users to view footage remotely and can be controlled remotely using a mobile device like a tablet or a smartphone. An application is typically installed to enable this function, and through the use of an internet connection, you can monitor your home from anywhere in the world. Smart cameras also make the storage of footage easier because they can be uploaded to the cloud. Depending on what purpose the smart cameras will serve and where they will be placed, you will need to select indoor cameras, outdoor cameras, or both. Both should have motion detection, high resolution, and a wide range of views.
ii. Smart lights
Smart lights are internet/Wi-Fi-enabled bulbs that can be turned off and on or even dimmed using a smartphone app. You could set them to turn on or off at specific times during the day or do it manually whenever you want.
iii. Smart doorbells
These usually have small cameras in the doorbell, motion sensors, and two-way audio. You are alerted when someone walks up to your door, or the bell is rung, and you are given a view of the person via the camera.
iv. Smart thermostats
With these devices, you can control and keep the temperature at a comfortable level without adjusting it at different times because they can learn your preferences over time. By doing this, they also help reduce energy consumption and alert you if there is any damage to it that may cause it to malfunction.
